A dental occlusogram is a comprehensive analysis of apatient's occlusion, which refers to how the teeth come together when the jaw is closed. It typically includes a chart that outlines the relationship between the upper and lower teeth, as well as information about the alignment, position, and bite force of each individual tooth.
The dental occlusogram is an essential tool in orthodontic treatment for planning and executing the treatment. By analyzing the occlusion and identifying any malocclusions (misalignments), orthodontists can determine the most appropriate treatment plan for the patient.
In addition to the occlusogram, the orthodontist may also use other diagnostic tools, such as X-rays, photographs, and dental impressions, to gather additional information about the patient's teeth and jaw. By combining all of this information, the orthodontist can develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to the patient's specific needs and goals. In summary, the dental occlusogram is a critical diagnostic tool in orthodontics, providing a comprehensive analysis of the patient's occlusion and aiding the orthodontist in developing an effective treatment plan to correct malocclusions and improve the patient's oral health and function.
How does this API work?
The occlusogram API reads the occlusal intraoral photographs or 3D scans, establishes the identification of each tooth, and its respective medio-distal point contacts, and performs space analysis.
